It’s Almost Time

It’s almost time,
almost time for the change in light
but almost time
for the poor and weak to reach out
their trembling hands to each other and to grasp.

It’s almost time
for the kind to smile
and be seen
in all their glory,
for the shift in power.

It’s almost time
for the silenced to sing
and for the earth to receive the sweet rain
of justice as it falls on ploughed fields.

It’s almost time to be brave
and to go the next step
without knowing how.

It’s almost time
for the knowledge of the Moon
to rise in the dark sky and let us know
there is more than one way
to see the road ahead.

Jupiter, Venus and the Moon December 8th

The waning Moon in company with Jupiter and Venus

Friday will begin a new lunar cycle at 5:29 am. 19° Sagittarius is the location for the Sun and Moon meet up. Jupiter and Venus have adorned the dawn sky with the waning Moon for days. Now we shall have a Moonless sky for a few days until she comes out of the Sun’s bright beams.

A few hours into the new Moon my husband and I will drive to New Hampshire’s state capital to stand with friends and fellow Druids who oppose a gas pipeline scheduled to cut through the state. All of this plays against the backdrop of the climate meetings in Paris, which started with high hopes and now seem to be floundering in efforts by government to be FOR protecting the climate, but not for any action, which might make a difference. A new Moon in Sagittarius seems like the opportunity to begin anew with the high hopes of this sign.

Sagittarius is associated with high ideals, but it seems ideals can also be candle light vigildangerous! Famous for tolerance, Sagittarius will not tolerate disagreement! The Sagittarian spirit helps us enjoy people from other cultures and backgrounds, but will also be quick to judge difference. Perhaps this conflict between enthusiastic idealism and the potential for harsh fanaticism is reflected in the mixture of human and horse, the symbol of the sign. It is often those who are most uncomfortable with their animal self, who feel the need to crush the life out of others. (more…)
